Neil Young on Facebook:
It's about sound quality. I don't need my music to be devalued by the worst quality in the history of broadcasting or any other form of distribution. I don't feel right allowing this to be sold to my fans. It's bad for my music.
Well, that's bullshit. Apparently Neil Young always had crystal clear radio and never sold his music on cassette tapes. And surely, money and his relationship with PonoMusic has nothing to do with this at all.
